Good fresh Thai

Had a good meal at Tamarin. The fried rice was incredibly fresh and the basil chicken had just the right amount of spice. Nice find!

The Thai food here is perfectly fine, but that's it. I really wouldn't make a special point of going here. The main server was quite unfriendly to every table. I believe we were the only tourists, but if you find yourself in the area, there are several restaurants on this pedestrian street. The food is definitely more expensive than you'd... More

I’m a big fan of Thai food and Helsinki does have some good Thai Restaurants too but Tamarin unfortunately is not one of them. I have eaten here a couple of times and every time I have experienced a minor disappointment; the food looks great and authentic but the flavors are not just there - everything is a bit bland....

I visited here with my partner on a holiday. The food was lovely. Very authentic and tasty. The service was great and the lady spoke perfect English. The food arrived in good time and was reasonably priced. My only negative would be the decor of the restaurant which all looked a bit tired and lackadaisical. However, still worth a visit!

I ate after work dish for 11 euros plus spring rolls for 6.50. The dish was nice portion of glass noodles with chicken. Service was quick and friendly enough and the food was alright. Nothing really fancy but still eatable.

Well, worst together with the other Tamarins in the city. Same food almost every day. Spice they use the most is soy sauce and they use it so much you cannot really taste anything else. This will be my last visit to Tamarin.

I just love this place. It is casual and always serves good, authentic Thai-food. Lunch buffet at 9,70€ and my preference is late lunch (until 18.00) for 11 €. Perfect chicken curry. The service is sometimes a bit clumsy, I guess, due to communication problems, but I can overcome that.. Recommended!

Modest but nice place for a curry. Good value and unpretentious. Shy service... in a nice and unobtrusive way.
